Far From The Apple Tree
Grant McPhee, 2019, 85 mins
She’s totally lying to you. Her daughters dead…killed herself.
Judith (Sorcha Groundsell – Netflix’s The Innocents, BBC’s Clique) is a struggling art student who lands a dream job of working for a renowned and somewhat sinister visual artist (Victoria Liddell – Outlaw King, River City). Judith’s work involves cataloguing the artists’ video footage and in doing so she discovers film sequences of a young woman, the artists’ dead daughter, who looks exactly like herself…
Featuring a fantastic soundtrack from Rose McDowall (Strawberry Switchblade) and Shawn Pinchbeck, this Pop art fairytale is our second title from Scottish director Grant McPhee; with strands of horror, ghost story and fairy tale all weaving together to make a compelling, haunting and absorbing experience.
Check out Grant’s Urban Fantasy vampire noir title Night Kaleidoscope as well, for another stylish and beautful, yet dark and gritty title; with another tremendous soundtrack!
‘Disorientating and hallucinatory. Sorcha Groundsell is stunning’
